It is possible that these rates changed — but under uniformitarianism, which is necessary for science to function, we must assume that rates did not change unless there is evidence for this change.
we will see that carbon dating strongly supports a young earth.
only rocks that contain radioactive elements can be used for radioisotope dating.· fossils from every level of the geologic record have measurable levels of c-14.
Now, in an article in Science on March 25, Waters and colleagues argue that tools have been found near Austin, Texas, that date to 15,500 years ago.
With a tool style that’s been found across much of North America, Clovis was the best-selling brand in “the first Americans” competition.

the uranium isotope can be leached out of, and the lead can migrate into, many rocks over the years.
